Beautiful butterflies, macaws, flamingos and little birds. The butterflies will land on you sometimes. There is also funny bugs and poison dart frogs in glass case and busy ants at work

I loved it in here. If my kids didn't get bored before me, I could have spent hours in here. If you take your time to search out all the living creatures in there, its pretty amazing.

We went as part of our Butchart Gardens ticket but what a worthwhile little stop off it turned out to be. There is not just butterfly's there are flamingos, parrots, iguanas and many other little creatures to see. Very beautiful.

Yes they are. We just ask that you are mindful of the other guests and that the feet stay on the paths and not in the garden beds. Thank you and enjoy your visit!
